Dolphins rookie QB Skylar Thompson has been named the team's starter vs. the Jets in Week 18. QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) is listed as questionable and is set to be the backup should he be active for Sunday's contest. This will be a tough draw for an inexperienced QB as the Jets' defense ranks as the 5th-toughest matchup for opposing QBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed. It's best to avoid Thompson entirely for fantasy purposes.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was a limited practice participant on Thursday. This marks the 2nd straight day of limited participation for Waddle ahead of Week 18 vs. the Jets. Friday's injury report should help give us a better idea regarding his availability for Sunday's game. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this one.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday and Thursday. This is certainly an encouraging sign ahead of Week 18 vs. the Jets. There's still a cloud of uncertainty hanging over this matchup though. Fantasy managers should be prepared for the possibility that rookie QB Skylar Thompson gets the nod if Bridgewater trends downward tomorrow. We'll have more clarity by tomorrow. Check back in then.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. This isn't exactly an ideal start for the week for the second-year wideout. Be sure to check back for updates regarding his status for Week 18 vs. Jets as the week unfolds.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his right pinkie in last week's loss to the Patriots. The finger is not broken, though, and "whether he can play this week will come down to swelling and if he can grip the ball well enough to throw," Rapoport adds. We'll keep an eye on Bridgewater's progress over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets. If Bridgewater can't go, QB Skylar Thompson will get the start. Miami signed QB Mike Glennon to the practice squad on Wednesday.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel conceded Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not in the team's Week 18 plans. QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his right pinkie in the loss to the Patriots, which seemingly makes QB Skylar Thompson the favorite to start Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater is believed to have a broken finger on his right hand, according to Pro Football Talk. PFT's Mike Florio said on the Sunday Night Football pregame show that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not expected to be cleared for Week 18. That means it'll likely be Skylar Thompson under center in next Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert caught a team-high 8 passes for 62 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Already down QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion), Miami lost backup QB Teddy Bridgewater to a finger injury late in the 3rd quarter. QB Skylar Thompson targeted RBs with 11 of his 21 attempts after that, including 5 of Mostert's catches. We'll see who lines up behind center for the Dolphins in Week 18. RB Jeff Wilson Jr. led the rushing vs. New England, with 15 carries for just 45 yards. he caught 3 of 7 targets for 31 yards. Mostert went just 9-29 rushing. Expect both to remain outside the top 24 RBs in our Week 18 fantasy football rankings.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s game at New England. After throwing an INT, Bridgewater hurt a finger while trying to make a tackle. We'll see if he’s able to return in the 4th quarter.

Dolphins EDGE Bradley Chute (ankle, hand) and CB Xavien Howard (knee) are inactive for today's game against the Patriots.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) didn't practice all week and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. No surprise there considering the multiple concussions Tagovailoa has sustained this year. QB Teddy Bridgewater will make his first start of the season in New England. He's averaged a big 8.7 yards on 60 attempts in spot duty and should at least be able to support WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle as fantasy starters.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (NIR/rest) did not participate in practice on Wednesday ahead of Week 17 vs. the Patriots. No need to sound the alarms for a veteran rest day. Keep up with our feed for updates tomorrow.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel announced Wednesday that QB Teddy Bridgewater will start Sunday against the Patriots. He also confirmed that QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered a concussion in last week's loss to the Packers. It's the 3rd concussion of the season for Tagovailoa, which makes it fair to wonder whether the starter will make it back for Week 18. We'll see about everything beyond this week. Bridgewater got 2 other games of prominent duty this year, throwing 3 TDs and 3 INTs in portions of games against the Bengals and Vikings. He sits in QB2 range in our Week 17 fantasy football rankings.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol. Per HC Mike McDaniel, “nobody recognized anything with regard to” a hit during Sunday’s game. Tua simply met with doctors and reported symptoms. Unfortunately, we might be looking at a Teddy Bridgewater start in Week 17 at New England.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle used an 84-yard TD to power a 5-143-1 receiving line in Sunday's loss to the Packers. He and WR Tyreek Hill tied for the team lead with 6 targets apiece. Hill caught 4 balls for 103, including a 52-yard reception. It's Waddle's 2nd straight game over 100 yards, but there's some luck involved in delivering plays of 67+ in each contest. Waddle posted a nice catch rate against Green Bay but had caught just 42.3% of targets over the previous 4 games. His QB has struggled over the past 4 weeks relative to previous performance. Both wideouts will be in fantasy football lineups in most cases for a Week 17 trip to New England, in spite of QB Tua Tagovailoa's recent performance.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa wound up with 310 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Packers, but his performance proved much worse than that. Nearly half of those yards came on 2 completions: an 84-yard TD to WR Jaylen Waddle and 52-yarder to Tyreek Hill. Tagovailoa went just 16 for 25 overall and tossed 3 INTs -- the last of which sealing the defeat on Miami's final possession. The 3rd-year QB's performance has dipped over the current 4-game losing streak. He entered Sunday's game off just 49.5% completions over his previous 3. Tagovailoa will make for a risk-reward option at New England in Week 17. He currently sits just inside the top 12 of our Week 17 QB rankings but is not a lock to stay there.

Dolphins EDGE Jaelan Phillips (knee) and S Eric Rowe (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Packers.

11:33am EST 12/25/22

Dolphins Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so it’s unclear how big a role he’ll play in this one. Consider Wilson a risk/reward RB3 in the plus matchup. RB Raheem Mostert remains the best bet in Miami’s backfield. RB Myles Gaskin is a healthy scratch.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is officially listed as questionable for Week 16. An absence from Wilson Jr. would give a jolt to the fantasy value of RB Raheem Mostert. Though Mostert rested for most of the week, only logging limited participation once this week, he'll be good to go as the Dolphins' RB1 presumably. The Packers' defense presents the 9th-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs this season. Consider Mostert a RB2 with upside, and be sure to check pre-game inactives for Wilson Jr.'s status.

Dolphins RBs Raheem Mostert (NIR/rest) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) logged limited participation at practice on Thursday. With so many games happening on Saturday this week, it'll be tough to gauge lineup decisions for these two. We're of the mindset that both guys seem likely to play. Unfortunately, the schedule makes it so fantasy managers will have to decide what to do sooner rather than later. Mostert and Wilson Jr. are RB3/flex options if they both play.
